cargo, just go a different route. >> reporter: shamara's mom wants the shooter in jail before he hurts another family. >> i feel upset. it enrages me. people go out there just to cause pain, and that stupid because you shot a 15-year-old girl, somebody so innocent, and what hasn't proven, except for that you're a lowlife. >> reporter: the family says walter are angry, there is room for forgiveness. >> i want them to for sure serve justice, but what is anger going to do? anger is going to get me driving down the street mad. >> reporter: friends and teachers held a vigil for the well-liked student yesterday at fremont high school. >> my name is shamara and this is what you should know about me -- >> reporter: she loved crime shows and wanted to be a forensic technician. >> i want to become a frantic science technician because i want to help solve unsolved murders. >> reporter: the family is hoping someone will speak up. >> given that there are different vehicle descriptions, what can the public do with this?

ificionshappening in vicinity o the humidity st below 15%. that's the factor helping to drive this, along with wind from the southwest around 12 miles per hour, with gusts up to around 20 miles per hour. cal fire says the wind isn't a major concern, but it will be a problem trying to get engines towards this. they've been doing air drops and will try to keep it to its current size around 20 acres. the good news is we are looking at a big pattern change as we head into the weekend. it will still be warm tomorrow, but the area of high pressure responsible for the warm weather is moving off to the east, and a storm system is going to approach the pacific coast. that will lead to much cooler temperatures on sunday, and even a chance of showers late in the day, especially north of the golden gate. let's check futurecast and take a look at the rain chance as it gets closer to us. we start the day dry on sunday. we see increasing clouds saturday night. the rain starts to move into coastal areas by midafternoon on sunday. futurecast is likely overplaying how intense the rain is. i don't think the radar will look like this. a lot of it will evaporate on the way down.wo

in the 50s. some spots just a bit cooler in the north bay, and then we start warming up. tomorrow's temperatures are even a couple of degrees warmer than today. by lunch time, temperatures will be 70 degrees, upper 60s along the coast. further inland, mid to upper 70s. most inland spots will reach up into the 80s, just a matter of how far into the 80s, approaching 90 degrees for fairfield, antioch, and brentwood. mid to upper 70s around the bay. temperatures drop off by almost 15 degrees by saturday to sunday with a chance for showers from golden gate northward. the cooler weather sticks around monday and tuesday, and then another chance of showers on wednesday, with another chance of showers after that on friday. our confidence in these rain chances decreases the farther into the future we look, but it does look like there may be a more significant rainmaker headed for all of the bay area by next weekend. fingers crossed that we can get
